Thanks! I would like to drop it to at least 18.5 any suggestions?

Changing out the saddle, seatpost and bars for more exotic parts could maybe get you down to 18.5. Maybe switch the pedals to speedplay or Eggbeater 4ti?

29ers are awesome! I have one (haven't posted it though) and its my favorite mountain bike 8)
I like your build, but I prefer gears. 1x10 is nice.

I prolly build it as a 1x10, what do you guys think? Sram XX or X0, XTR? I would be keep the lighting crank and formula brakes. Maybe a different frame?

I have X0 on my bike, with a short cage rear derailleur.
XX1 does look interesting, but I wonder which wheels aren't compatible.
36x10, with a 36x42 would be an interesting combo... 8)
How do you like the Fast Traks?
